The Healthy Mind Platter

The activities include:

  • Focus time – focusing closely on tasks and taking on challenges
  • Play time – being creative, spontaneous and playful; taking part in activities we enjoy, which helps create new connections in the brain.
  • Connecting time – being social and spending time with people whose company we enjoy (ideally in person), as well going outside and taking time to connect with the ‘natural world’.
  • Physical time – going for a walk or run, going to the gym or playing sport; regular exercise “can help lift mood, improve sleep, increase energy levels, help block negative thoughts and/or distract people from daily worries, increase opportunities to socialise, and generally increase wellbeing”.
  • Time in – can range from activities like meditation or progressive muscle relaxation, to those as simple as going for a walk outside or listening to music.
  • Down time – “if we consciously choose to spend down time, we might find a comfortable chair, in the comfort of our living room or in the shadow of a tree, and disconnect from an intentional, linear focus on our environment” – the opposite of focus time.
  • Sleep time – the student lifestyle is not often associated with good sleeping habits, but sleep is essential for maintaining good mental and physical health.
